Rename devices

Ability to rename devices that either don’t show a descriptive host name (eg. echo devices) or have blank values. It will be helpful to figure out which device is which.

  • This has been a feature in the app for awhile now. You can tap on a device and give it a nickname to set it to whatever you want.

  • Are you trying to search for some Video Production Services Dubai if you need this then go ahead with this

  • I haven’t looked at release notes but I’ve noticed over last week or so that I can now rename any device. Before it would not let you rename some. My sons Nintendo switch was a example that I can now fix. 

    I love that new features are being pursued for existing products. Rare to see these days. 


  • Yeah, I’ve been doing this for awhile. Very cool feature 

  • New to eero, but this most definitely doesn't work for any device, as of Feb '22. 


    I can type a new name in, but there is no save button like shown in this support article:


    Has nickname feature been removed?

    • bruce-eero Just type in the new name, and then, at least for me on an iOS device, I just tap “done” on my keyboard (next to the space at) and then hit the back button in the top left.

    • cMoo92 you rock. The support article, and external how-to blogs, show a Save button in the upper right corner.  I guess they got rid of this and haven't updated docs.  But on Android there is a check mark in the lower right of the keyboard, and this worked!  Very happy to be able to describe all my devices accurately.  Thank you!

  • Hi, I've got the pro 6 and changing names of devices and nicknames are not possible.   Any advise?

      Greg I got the eero pro 6E and looks like they use the same app. Do you mean the nicknames don’t save? If you use iOS, tap the nickname field, enter a new name, and then tap “Done” on the onscreen keyboard or “return” on the physical iPad keyboard. When you tap the back arrow, the nickname should be saved.
